create a single page info page that explains the firefly serenity story that someone could read in passing..
waiting in line
sitting at a bus stop
even in the bathroom
laundrymat

any place that people are sitting twittling their thumbs.

also im considering having some basic buisness cards promoting firefly serenity that can be stratigicly placed and are of a convient size
I think I can get like 1000 for 10$


if you cant run,you walk, if you cant walk, you crawl, and when you cant crawl, your friends will carry you.

I actually like the business card idea. You can leave them laying in all kinds of places, and people will pick them up and look at them. I know I would.

Sex and violence on the big screen, where it belongs.

Agreed. I love reading the little things people leave lying around. Something like that would definitely pique my interest.

yes but those are visual posters they only are good for a few seconds, great for someone passing by I need something that is short but interesting that someone can read in a minute or 2 while they are waiting for something.
I know if i was sitting in a restroom and there was an attractive posting that wasnt pure advertizing I know I would read it kind of a mini story or short informational.
like the "what is firefly" or some such
still need an eye catcher banner on top though maby the ship with mal and zoe to the sides
or firefly in big letters.

Maybe this is dumb, but here is my idea for a new Firefly movie.

What if Firefly were to crossover to the Stars Wars universe with perhaps a cameo from Hans Solo and the Millennium Falcon. At least they both dealt in the same business with the transport of contraband. That would certainly stir up some public interest.

Now if only Josh Whedon and George Lucas would get together on this project.

Wow, I guess on the way they'll stop by the Entreprise so LaForge can miraculously (and without consequence) invent a method to send them back to that Galaxy Far, Far Away. Of course he'll need Doc Brown's help and seeing how he is a Klingon in the Star Trek verse things could get complicated. I'm sure theres anothe franchise we can pull in to fix the problem though...

Seriously, in the last decade Lucas managed to ruin what many considered the bible of science fiction movies. I wouldn't want him touching Firefly with a ten foot pole.

anyone good at writing or knows some food paragraphs to cut and paste?

I want a sheet that both promotes firefly and tells the story of the fight for it.
to me the fight is inspiring and is tangable proof the show has worth.

the number of shows on TV that spawn that much drive and determination, I can count on 1 hand and still have fingers left over.

I think I saw something on the done the impossible CD describing firefly if nothing good is posted here.

I was going to suggest you check out the DTI site for clues on how to write it. Of course, you wouldn't want to copy it verbatim.
That will sure help you with what to say about the fight to get the BDM.

As Penguin suggested up above, 11th Hour's guerilla marketing site has such good things on it. The posters printed out in small form make excellent introductions to the 'Verse. She's also got a printable bookmark on there somewhere.

There are so many very cool banners too all over all the Firefly/Serenity sites. Perhaps one printed out might make a nice thing to leave somewhere where someone might pick it up.
